PayPal Confirmed Charity – Support AiA!

Good news Awesome in Action supporters, Nick’s non-profit is now a confirmed charity with PayPal! This makes it easy for Nick to receive and track donations, as well as offering an option for supporters to have a recurring monthly donation. This means that you can support Nick and Awesome in Action with less hassle and a safe, reliable platform.

Becoming a confirmed charity with PayPal also reduces the fees for Awesome in Action associated with receiving and transferring money. This also ensures that PayPal has verified Nick’s status as a charitable organization and that his PayPal account is linked directly to his business.

As we all know, COVID-19 has caused some problems for many organizations, especially organizations like Nick’s that rely on performing community outreach to raise money and rally support for their goals.

For the last year, Nick has been unable to perform community outreach events, go into classrooms or group gatherings to spread the word about Awesome and Action and Nick’s goal to spread awareness and spark a shift in how we think about different abilities. This has made fundraising difficult for Nick, and he really misses his community outreach opportunities.

Please consider making a one time or monthly recurring donation to Awesome in Action. You can find the donation link by clicking on the donate button on the side bar or by clicking here.

These links will take you PayPal’s secure website and allow you to select the type and amount of your donation. Your financial information is not shared with Nick via PayPal.

Nick wants to thank his supporters for continuing to be a part of Awesome in Action’s mission to support people of all abilities in his community and spark a shift in the way we think about abilities! Funding can help Nick come up with creative ideas and activities to keep Awesome in Action going strong.

We hope to have more updates over the course of the year, keep checking Nick’s website and social media platforms for news and opportunities to help Nick spread his mission during this difficult time.

COVID-19 Activities for All Abilities

Stay safe and wear a mask!

It’s tough to be living during a pandemic. 2020 was a hard year for Awesome in Action to do outreach and community based activities. But there are lots of activities you can do while staying safe and socially distancing. COVID doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, it just looks a little different right now.

When you are a high risk individual you have to think about activities you can do that are fun but also safe. Thankfully there’s plenty to do to keep busy!

Taking a walk is a healthy way to have fun while staying socially distant. You can walk with friends or by yourself.

Watching a movie you love at home is a great way to enjoy time alone or socially distancing with friends.

Listening to music passes the time and can stimulate your brain and help you enjoy time inside.

Cooking and enjoying or sharing food you make can help you develop healthy habits and allow you to activate your senses. You can even deliver meals to friends or family and drop them at the door.

Arts and crafts let you express yourself creatively while staying safe inside.

Working on your business by publishing updates, keeping up with social media, and brainstorming ideas can be productive and lucrative.

Call your friends and family and check in on them, everyone is struggling right now so a call from you might make their day!

Remember, stay safe and wear your mask!
